Amazing events that are happening for Dublin Pride 2021

By June 25, 2021Trending

There are some AMAZING Pride 2021 events taking place.

The world has been in a real state of flux over the last few months, as a result of the outbreak of Covid-19. As a result of the pandemic, thousands of major events have been cancelled, or changed dramatically. 

But the show must go on, in some capacity. 

June is Pride Month, a promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group. And while this year will be very different, the show will well and truly go on. 

In celebration of Pride 2021, a number of brilliant virtual events will be taking place this weekend.

So, we wanted to share a round up with you of some of the best virtual events taking place, so that you can sign up, tune in and enjoy.

Drag & Draw is an art class with a difference! Led by facilitator and artist Ailbhe O’Connor, the classes are essentially life drawing sessions with drag performers as models, so it is half art class and half drag show.
